1 Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Characteristics of Texas Doctoral Programs 2015 The 18 Characteristics of Texas Public Doctoral Programs were developed by the Graduate Education Advisory Committee to create a snapshot of all doctoral programs at public universities and health-related institutions. The information is intended to provide information to the institutions for self-improvement and to serve as a guide to members of the general public who are interested in doctoral education, such as prospective students and their families. The most recent review occurred in The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) Self Study can be found at https://sph.uth.edu/content/uploads/2010/06/self-study-report-2012.pdf.

The DrPH in Health Services Organization stopped accepting new students in academic year All DrPH programs are available at the Houston campus. The DrPH in Community Health Practice is also available in San Antonio. The DrPH in Health Promotion/Health Education is also available in Austin, Brownsville, Dallas, and El Paso. The DrPH in Occupational and Environmental Health is also available in San Antonio. The DrPH degree program requires 48 credit hours of coursework beyond the MPH degree. The MPH or equivalent course work is required for admission. Degree requirements include major, minor, and breadth courses; elective courses; a practicum; and a dissertation. Once approximately 18 hours of department-specified required courses are completed, students must pass a qualifying/preliminary examination. The DrPH degree at the UTSPH requires a major in one of the public health disciplines. The major course requirements are at least 12 credit hours. In addition to the major area of study, DrPH students are strongly recommended to complete a breadth/minor with a focus on leadership/management, in order to be prepared to hold public health leadership and management positions. In the DrPH Community Health Practice Program, students achieve the following competencies: 1. Analyze and evaluate the determinants of individual and population health. 2. Analyze and evaluate the core functions and essential services of public health. 3. Synthesize the concepts of the public health system, evaluate its components and analyze the interactions among the components. 4.
